Sixers Add Backup Point Guard Raul Neto, Korver Next?
The Sixers roster continues to take shape, after they found a replacement for T.J. McConnell, by landing former Utah Jazz guard, Raul Neto to a one-year, guaranteed veteran's minimum deal.
Neto is a solid backup, but the Jazz needed to make room from Mike Conley Jr., making him expendable. The 26-year-old PG has career averages of 4.8 points, 1.9 assists and 1.5 triples in 14.1 minutes per game. He average a career best 18.5 minutes per game this season in Utah.
Another name to keep an eye on is former Sixer sharp-shooter Kyle Korver. Woj is reporting that Korver will consider signing with the Philadelphia 76ers, among other teams, once he clears waivers after being traded to Phoenix.
Korver, played with the Sixers from 2003-2007, and had bounced around the league, playing for five teams, scoring 8.6 points, hitting on 42% of this three-point shots during his career. He hit on 39.7% of his three's this season.
